  1. FRACTURES OF MAXILLA AND MANDIBLE By DR.CHAMPA SUSHEL MBBS- FCPS ASSISTANT PROFESSOR SURGICAL UNIT -4

  2. Etiology • Maxillofacial fractures result from either blunt or penetrating trauma. • @60% of patients with severe facial trauma have multisystem trauma and the potential for airway compromise. • 20-50% concurrent brain injury. • 1-4% cervical spine injuries. • Blindness occurs in 0.5-3%

  3. Etiology • 25% of women with facial trauma are victims of domestic violence. • 25% of patients with severe facial trauma will develop Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

  4. Anatomy

  5. Anatomy

  6. Emergency ManagementAirway Control • Control airway: • Chin lift. • Jaw thrust. • Oropharyngeal suctioning. • Manually move the tongue forward. • Maintain cervical immobilization

  7. Emergency ManagementIntubation Considerations • Avoid nasotracheal intubation • Consider fiberoptic intubation if available. • Alternatives include percutaneoustranstracheal ventilation and retrograde intubation. • Be prepared for cricothyroidotomy.

  8. Emergency ManagementHemorrhage Control • Maxillofacial bleeding: • Direct pressure. • Avoid blind clamping in wounds. • Nasal bleeding: • Direct pressure. • Anterior and posterior packing. • Pharyngeal bleeding: • Packing of the pharynx around ET tube.

  9. History • Obtain a history from the patient /witnesses • AMPLE history • Specific Questions: • Was there loss of conscious? If so, how long? • How is your vision? • Hearing problems?

  10. History • Specific Questions: • Is there pain with eye movement? • Are there areas of numbness or tingling on your face? • Is the patient able to bite down without any pain? • Is there pain with moving the jaw?

  11. Physical Examination • Inspection of the face for asymmetry. • Inspect open wounds for foreign bodies. • Palpate the entire face. • Supraorbital and Infraorbital rim • Zygomatic-frontal suture • Zygomatic arches

  12. Physical Examination • Inspect the nose for asymmetry, telecanthus, widening of the nasal bridge. • Inspect nasal septum for septal hematoma, CSF or blood. • Palpate nose for crepitus, deformity and subcutaneous air. • Palpate the zygoma along its arch and its articulations with the maxilla, frontal and temporal bone.

  13. Physical Examination • Check facial stability. • Inspect the teeth for malocclusions, bleeding and step-off. • Intraoral examination: • Manipulation of each tooth. • Check for lacerations. • Stress the mandible. • Tongue blade test. • Palpate the mandible for tenderness, swelling and step-off.

  14. Physical Examination • Check visual acuity. • Check pupils for roundness and reactivity. • Examine the eyelids for lacerations. • Test extra ocular muscles. • Palpate around the entire orbits..

  15. Physical Examination • Examine the cornea for abrasions and lacerations. • Examine the anterior chamber for blood or hyphema. • Perform fundoscopic exam and examine the posterior chamber and the retina.

  16. Physical Examination • Examine and palpate the exterior ears. • Examine the ear canals. • Check nuero distributions of the supraorbital, infraorbital, inferior alveolar and mental nerves.

  17. Maxillary Fractures • High energy injuries. • Impact 100 times the force of gravity is required . • Patients often have significant multisystem trauma. • Classified as LeFort fractures.

  18. Maxillary FracturesLeFort I • Definition: • Horizontal fracture of the maxilla at the level of the nasal fossa. • Allows motion of the maxilla while the nasal bridge remains stable.

  19. Maxillary FracturesLeFort I • Clinical findings: • Facial edema • Malocclusion of the teeth • Motion of the maxilla while the nasal bridge remains stable

  20. Maxillary FracturesLeFort I • Radiographic findings: • Fracture line which involves • Nasal aperture • Inferior maxilla • Lateral wall of maxilla • CT of the face and head • coronal cuts • 3-D reconstruction

  21. Maxillary FracturesLeFort II • Definition: • Pyramidal fracture • Maxilla • Nasal bones • Medial aspect of the orbits

  22. Maxillary FracturesLeFort II • Clinical findings: • Marked facial edema • Nasal flattening • Traumatic telecanthus • Epistaxis or CSF rhinorrhea • Movement of the upper jaw and the nose.

  23. Maxillary FracturesLeFort II • Radiographic imaging: • Fracture involves: • Nasal bones • Medial orbit • Maxillary sinus • Frontal process of the maxilla • CT of the face and head

  24. Maxillary FracturesLeFort III • Definition: • Fractures through: • Maxilla • Zygoma • Nasal bones • Ethmoid bones • Base of the skull

  25. Maxillary FracturesLeFort III • Clinical findings: • Dish faced deformity • Epistaxis and CSF rhinorrhea • Motion of the maxilla, nasal bones and zygoma • Severe airway obstruction

  26. Maxillary FracturesLeFort III • Radiographic imaging: • Fractures through: • Zygomaticfrontal suture • Zygoma • Medial orbital wall • Nasal bone • CT Face and the Head

  27. Maxillary FracturesTreatment • Secure airway • Control Bleeding • Head elevation 40-60 degrees • Consult with maxillofacial surgeon • Consider antibiotics • Admission

  28. Mandible FracturesPathophysiology • Mandibular fractures are the third most common facial fracture. • Assaults and falls on the chin account for most of the injuries. • Multiple fractures are seen in greater then 50%. • Associated Cervical spine injuries – 0.2-6%.

  29. Mandible FracturesClinical findings • Mandibular pain. • Malocclusion of the teeth • Separation of teeth with intraoral bleeding • Inability to fully open mouth. • Preauricular pain with biting. • Positive tongue blade test.

  30. Mandible Fractures • Radiographs: • Panoramic view • Plain view: PA and Lateral view

  31. Mandibular FracturesTreatment • Nondisplaced fractures: • Analgesics • Soft diet • oral surgery referral in 1-2 days • Displaced fractures, open fractures and fractures with associated dental trauma • Urgent oral surgery consultation • All fractures should be treated with antibiotics and tetanus prophylaxis.

  32. Mandibular Dislocation • Causes of mandibular dislocation are: • Blunt trauma • Excessive mouth opening • Risk factors: • Weakness of the temporal mandibular ligament • Over stretched joint capsule • Shallow articular eminence • Neurologic diseases

  33. Mandibular Dislocation • The mandible can be dislocated: • Anterior 70% • Posterior • Lateral • Superior • Dislocations are mostly bilateral.

  34. Mandibular Dislocation • Clinical features: • Inability to close mouth • Pain • Facial swelling • Physical exam: • Palpable depression • Jaw will deviate away • Jaw displaced anterior

  35. Mandibular Dislocation • Diagnosis: • History & Physical exam • X-rays • CT

  36. Mandibular Dislocation • Treatment: • Muscle relaxant • Analgesic • Closed reduction in the emergency room

  37. Mandibular Dislocation • Treatment: • Oral surgeon consultation: • Open dislocations • Superior, posterior or lateral dislocations • Non-reducible dislocations • Dislocations associated with fractures
